The Nutrients Milk Provide

Milk contains protein, minerals, and vitamins. Milk and cheese are our most important sources of calcium, and also give us phosphorus, vitamin B12, and riboflavin.

Milk is commonly enriched with vitamin D, which many people get too little of, especially those who live in the Northern hemisphere.

Milk contains different nutrients depending on if your milk is mammalian or plant-based

The plant-based milk is almost always fortified with nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. This because of the lack of naturally occuring nutrients in the bean or seed itself.

The mammalian milk can also be enriched with some nutrients but as it contains a lot of beneficial nutrients naturally it's not always needed or preferred.
